|Bio and Links|
|I encountered Find A Grave years ago while surfing the net one day on some Hollywood greats, when I came across Clark Gable's memorial. Getting interested in the photos featured, I started browsing names and there they were: Fernandel, David Niven, Rita Hayworth...I was impressed to see such a keen index of so many deceased persons, even though at that time it amounted to only a couple of thousands!|
Although I kept visiting the site from time to time, I did not join in immediately as a member. When I did, I used to leave a couple of messages, but creating memorials seemed a bit difficult. The first one came following the death of my Great Aunt, Sr. Teresa Orlando rscj., in 2002.
Eventually, FAG became for me a special point of reference. It did take me quite a time to collect all the information posted here, especially when it relates all the biographies featured. Naturally, in order to be able to present here all these profiles and photos, I have been in touch across the years, with several dioceses, provinces, and archive collections from all over the world. Naming all the sources is virtually impossible, but I have to mention Mr. Salvador Miranda, creator of "The Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church" Digital Resource.
Researchers might find a number of interesting profiles in my entries, including a full Necrology of all the late members of the Mid-West Augustinian Province and the Western Dominican Province, which I added across the years thanks to the great support and help received from Brother Thomas Taylor OSA., and the late Father Fabian Stan Parmisano OP., (1926 - 2009). Other entries include all the Dominican Friars interred at Rosaryville, Ponchatoula, Louisiana. These Friars belonged to the Midwestern Dominican Province of the USA. Most of the Dominican Friars affiliated with this Province buried at All Saints Cemetery in Des Plaines, Illinois, can be also found in another Virtual Cemetery of mine.
I always try to remember people who in their humbleness worked and took care of many, in silence, for whom history has left little or no space. Hoping you might find some of the memorials to your interest, I wish above all, that they might be also appreciated by others or remembered in prayers.

|Bob Hufford||RE: Cardinal Cicognani|
He was a great man but he was in his late 70s when John XXIII made him a Cardinal and was 80 at the time of the conclave which elected Pope Paul VI. A bit old. Maybe Benedict XVI was chosen partly to avoid another really long Papacy.
|Bob Hufford||Cardinal Cicognani|
Excellent job on the Cardinals you have posted recently. It's nice to see your good work finally appreciated.
I think Cardinal Cicognani would have made a good Pope, but I suppose he was too old by the time he was in a position to be considered.
I am enjoying your work very much. Would you like to take over my memorials for Paul Gregoire and Paul-Emile Leger? Maybe you could give them a well deserved biography.

I see you do research of some cemeteries in France. I have a burial record of a person that was buried 1910 in Beausoleil, France Alps Maritime. It states
Burial : Municipal cemetery in Beausoleil
Do you know of this cemetery ? Thank you for reading .

Hi Eman Bonnici,
I am Paul Teuma from Senglea, son of the late Francis (Cikku) who took care at Redeemer (Redentur) at Senglea Basilica.
Just this minute I came across your great and wonderful contribution to my fathers' cousin John on Find A Grave. I know that you are doing a splendid job as it must be very very time consuming
May God bless you and keep you.
May I also thank you personally for all you have been doing all these years.
|A Girl Who Loves Genealogy||Hi there Eman!|
I noticed that you created the cemetery for Santa Fiora. I am helping a relative work on her family tree where her relatives are buried there.
Can you speak Italian? Would love to chat with you!

Thank you so very much, Eman, for taking the time to photograph the grave site of my Great Uncle, Ernest Oliver HOMANS.
I certainly appreciate having these photos to attach to my family records.

Last year I entered a memorial for Rev. Rudolf DiLong and you requested that I include a bio for him that you had written, and indicate that he was famous. I was glad to do so. Today I received a message from Find A Grave that he does not meet the requirements for being famous. Because you are more familiar with Rev. DiLong's life I am transferring his memorial to you in the hope that after reviewing Find A Grave's requirements you will be able to amend the bio you wrote for him and to help him get the rating desired.
